This is a lovely place to visit to view the twin churches and the flaminio obelisco. The churches are awesome.

This is a lovely place to visit, to view the churches, fountains, enjoy street music and even eat a meal. It is quiet, as it is a pedestrian area, which is a boon in a busy city. There is a lot to see and enjoy...More

Nothing like as busy as some of the other big piazzas, which was nice. Interesting obelisk and just pleasant to sit down for a while.

Immense square, very active. Sounds of Beatles songs coming from a duo of street musicians. A great entry point to Via del Corso and a wonderful traipse along this popular street. It was sunny and the atmosphere matched. Great for people watching and then wandering.

Baroque palazzos line the streets, and are filled with
enticing boutiques and food shops. By day, Rome’s
best-dressed denizens criss-cross its streets in a
fashionable parade of errands, occasionally pausing to

Yes, just ask your host for the closest one. There is a Valeri Alimentari and further away a Carrefour Express for example.

Most of the tours start around Colosseo. You can reach Termini metro station by express, regional train or bus from airport. Booking around Termini metro station would be sensible.

Basically a very large square where there are often evening events and buskers. An obelisk from the circus massimo is in the centre. At the top of Corso, the main shopping street. Go due west over the bridge to the Vatican... More
